Have a Voice, Not Merely a Seat at the Table:
Powerful Strategies to Amplify Your Impact


In group settings, men are 75% more likely to speak up than women. And when a woman does speak up, it's statistically probable that her male counterparts will either interrupt her or speak over her. What does this mean? It means, even in the professional world today, if you're not ready to fight to be heard through ally-building strategies, your potential could be silenced. In this engaging, actionable session, Sharon will share strategies and tactics to amplify your voice figuratively (and literally) and hone your message to make certain that your voice is heard - so that you truly have a voice, and not just a seat, at the table.  Available handout.

TEDx Talk -  Give Vilomahs a Voice


In December 2019, Sharon Delaney McCloud gave the talk of her life at TEDx Cary Women in front of a sold-out crowd of 400 people. As a mother and advocate, Sharon shared her experience giving a voice to vilomahs everywhere.

She built her career telling other people's stories. But that path took a sharp turn when her daughter was diagnosed with cancer and Sharon's family embarked on the fight of their lives to save their little girl. 

Since then, Sharon started sharing her own story about grit, gratitude, and grace, even under the most crushing circumstances like the death of a child. And what she has discovered is that human connection can not only breathe life into the deepest grief but can also uncover joy.


In this inspirational talk, audiences will learn about the Vilomah Voice, a playbook on how to speak to bereaved parents that provides healing and comfort even in the most awkward and difficult situations.
